011 - WAR ROOM: PANDEMIC: CHINA (ft. Dr. Kaz)

May 22, 2020

How to express concerns over Chinese surveillance state apparatus, and the threat of it coming over here, without falling into the company of unhinged conspiracy theorists? Can we ask questions about how China has handled the pandemic without playing into the hands of nationalists, racists and war hawks? Are there seriously 5G surveillance state promo commercials in China?? What's the HUMAN FLESH SEARCH ENGINE???

To answer these questions I talked to Dr Kaz, an Asian Studies researcher at an Australian university, about all things China. An excellent yarn! All this and more in this... the latest ep of WAR ROOM: PANDEMIC.

010 - PRISONS ft. Debbie Kilroy & Jock Palfreeman

May 8, 2020

PRISONS MEGA EP!  I speak to Debbie Kilroy of Sister’s Inside (12:23) about decarceration, the work she does and her experience recovering from COVID-19.  I also talk to Jock Palfreeman (59:19) who spent 12 years unjustly behind bars in Bulgaria before being sort-of-but-not-quite released last year.  Jock is the chairman of the Bulgarian Prisoners Association - we speak about prisons in Bulgaria, his situation, how we can help Jock, and how regressive we both are.  I again introduce the episode from the broken hull of my pretty Ruby Princess, whilst riding my Pangolin King.

009 - 5G Deradiation Meditation

April 24, 2020

I speak to senior reporting at 10daily Josh Butler about good coronavirus reporting vs. economic death cult punditry (8:30). I chat with science writer Thomas Crow about coronavirus and 5G myths & facts (41:19). I command my army of bats & pangolins from the deck of the Ruby Princess. A cop issues a summary notice to someone buying non-essential baby food.  And Zachary of MAASC conducts a premium 5G deradiation wellness meditation.

008 - I Ride The Ruby Princess

April 10, 2020

I talk to Nathan Leitch of Barpirdhila Foundation (9:59) about their fundraiser to support Indigenous artists & community affected by COVID-19; yarn with Anthony Kelly of the Police Accountability Project (43:24) about increased copper powers in the pandemic and how they’re misusing them; and I visit & revisit some old mates, such as prominent Australian nationalists, Nazis, conspiracy theorists & cooked Facebook groups, to learn about the shit that they’re making up about coronavirus.

I record The Poor Can Feed The Birds aboard the hull of the abandoned Ruby Princess, where I ride atop a mighty, enormous pangolin steed.  I control an army of horseshoe bats that flock around me like a cloud of night.  We steer the disease hulk around the nation.  I am Dread Coronavirus.  Support me on Patreon:  https://patreon.com/tomtanuki

006 - YARD RETROSPECTIVE! (ft. Sean Bedlam)

March 13, 2020

SPECIAL EP!!!  Here's a MEGA RETROSPECTIVE of YARD (sometimes known as Yelling At Racist Dogs) with Sean Bedlam, comedian & activist & co-founder of YARD.  We go right through the history and strategy of YARD, and finish with a...  YARD NAME CHANGE?!  What the HELL?  Listen and see!

YARD, for those of you not familiar, is Australia's most obnoxious, shouty anti-fascist group.  Founded in 2017, it is the Australian Tradition Which Has Always Existed, and it has mainly involved shouting at lots of rockstar racists and their shit punters, and being really annoying and irritating to them.  It's been labelled as 'authoritarian terrorism' by Lauren Southern's tour organiser.  Really though, it's, like, yelling.  Relax.

002 - Invasion Day, Bushfires, Energy Beams (ft. Celeste Liddle)

January 15, 2020

Big ep 002!  I welcome on Celeste Liddle of Black Feminist Ranter fame on to talk about all matters Invasion Day 2020, which she's helping to organise, and the rallies' increasing importance in the context of an Australia on fire.  (Literal bushfires, that is.  Not a metaphorical 'on fire' like the MSM all complained about someone saying after the 2019 rally.)  Also, some idiot interrupts with some feeries from the YouTubes.
